Galaxy S9: Call Number As Default – Solved

The Samsung Galaxy S9 offers you a variety of editing options with its Contacts feature. One of such options is the ability to add more than one number for the same entry.
This means that you can pick from the different pre-installed options you inserted before when trying to call a particular contact.
To avoid confusion, the Galaxy S9 allows you to choose a particular number from the list of numbers under that contact as your default call number.
Your smartphone, by default, will call the number that was first saved under that particular contact. Nevertheless, you might prefer to have the business or mobile number of that contact as your default call number instead of the landline number that was saved first.
You can set your default call number as the Standard Call Number instead of the first entry.

Here are the Steps to Follow

  1. Turn ON your Smartphone
  2. Scroll to and launch the Contacts app
  3. Browse and click on the contact whose default call number you want to change
  4. Edit the contact details and tap on the MORE option located on the upper right corner of the screen
  5. A context menu will pop up with a list of options, click on the ’’Mark As Standard’’ option
  6. A new window option will emerge containing a Number section
  7. You can then select the desired number as your default call number for that contact
  8. Tap on the ’’Done’’ button to apply and save the changes to the contact
  9. A check mark will appear beside your preferred default call number to confirm that the number is the default number in your Contacts app

With these simple steps, you have successfully changed your default call number for the contact. The only drawback is that you have to do it individually for all contacts that you want to change their default call number on your Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphone.
